Jack Tries and Tries and Tries Again

 

Jack kissing Penny

Jack has been smitten with his girlfriend, Penny, since he met her. Penny is finally ready and Jack passed all of his tests so… The first date was a valiant effort but apparently Jack forgot how. The second date had a similar result with poor Jack just ending up tired out. Jack and Penny earned a trip to the vet where we let the skilled hands of science work their magic. No word yet be we are hoping that Jack’s fish have swum again.

Jack the natural way: 1 for 2

Updates to follow on Penny’s success

Shilohs on the National Mall

The MAC chapter of the the SSDCA held a walk on the National Mall and had a great turnout. We had eight shilohs and their people turn out. It was pretty exciting because the annual diabetes walk was going on and 8,000 people walked right by all the dogs. The dogs had  great time and stood and sat there watching them all go by. Many people came over to ask about the dogs. It is amazing how many people think that they are GSDs. Many kids played with the dogs as well as took pictures. A great day was had by all. Check out the photo gallery of the day below.

Goodbye, Kimo.

Kimo Goes to the Bridge.

He was a great dog who lived a very gentle, sweet life.He loved his dinner, walks to the mailbox, scratches behind his ears and his canine sisters Ginger and Jolene. Most of all he loved his people.Don and Josh took him on his last car ride today. Theirs were the last voices he heard as he was loved from this world to the next.Tonight he runs on strong legs with the great ones who have gone before him. Maggie, Buck, JD, Stormie, Tex, Orion, Hank, Judge and sweet Atticus.I will miss his head butts and “WoooWooo”s. I know they wait, and it makes my sad heart smile…

The Perfect Stick

Just thought I would send along a few pictures of Jolene in pursuit of the perfect stick! Her daily job is to hunt for the best stick in the yard and proudly carry it around for awhile. Then comes quiet time while she sits and shreds her stick, and finally nap time. Stick-ing is hard work when you are only 5 months old! AND stick-ing is quite the challenge when there is 23 inches on snow on the ground!

Jolene’s First Snow Day

The first snow of the year is falling right now. Ginger and Jolene are extra frisky in the snow. We did not know what to expect with Jolene but she ran right out, made some snow yellow, and then proceeded to try to eat every bit of white snow she could find.
